Ok, I realise this is still in migration but I'd like to raise this 
point right now.

Overall, you rarely find people who are good at code who are also good 
translators and vice versa. Therefore relying on a localization setup 
that requires you to be able to read a Levelr 36 Scroll of Unix is a 
great way of keeping out people who are good at translation but bad at 
code. Like me. If one doesn't want end-users grumbling about shoddy 
translation, then one needs more good translators, which means not 
having obstacles like this. Cause I'm passing at what an SDF is... I'm 
sure that some lovely line of code that begins with $ but I don't know 
of it.

I'm not in a hurry so I'll wait for Pootle to come online but at a 
philosophical level, the l10n side of AOO should bear that sort of thing 
in mind.
